I have a terminal server runing windows server 2003, can I install MS Project 2007 on this server.  I know the prior version of Project will not run on a terminal server.  Does anyone know if Project 2007 will run on a terminal server?

The retail or OEM versions of Project 2007 will not work on Terminal Server, however you can buy a volume license version that will work. Most of the new 2007 applications are actually far more restrictive on TS. Rightly so I suppose as this was a common license violation. Office 2007 for example will not even install, unless you have the proper licensing. It comes up with a warning that you need special TS licensing. As I understand it Project 2007 actually installs, but when you start the application you get the same warning, as in the link below. I would check with a local MS licensing agent.
